Wine Storage Tips | Mini-Storage Greenville, NC

At Stow and Go Storage, we are all about providing you with quality mini-storage options and unbeatable customer service. That’s why we offer two state-of-the-art storage facilities in the Greenville, NC area. With two locations and a variety of unit sizes to choose from, you are sure to find mini-storage that meets your specific needs.

If you like to collect wine, you may not have room for all of it in your home. That’s why it’s helpful to have a mini-storage unit to store your wine. However, you’ll need to take some extra precautions to ensure that your wine is protected in storage. Here are some wine storage tips to help you out:

  • First and foremost, wine should ONLY be stored in a climate-controlled unit. The fluctuating temperatures in a non-climate controlled unit will destroy your wine.
  • Store your wine horizontally on a wine rack so that your cork does not dry out and rot.
  • Avoid exposing your wine to light– both sunlight and artificial light– as much as possible.
  • Add padding to your storage unit and your wine racks to help reduce vibrations that might move or shake your wine, as too much movement can shake up the sediment in the wine.

If you have a prized wine collection, you can enjoy it for years to come with proper storage. When you store with us, you can rest assured that our enhanced security measures will keep your collection safe and sound.

Beat the Heat This Summer | Mini-storage Greenville, NC

At Stow and Go Storage, we are all about providing you with quality mini-storage options and unbeatable customer service. That’s why we offer two state-of-the-art storage facilities in the Greenville, NC area. With two locations and a variety of unit sizes to choose from, you are sure to find mini-storage that meets your specific needs.

The official start to summer will be here before you know it. In NC, we start to get hot temperatures even before summer hits. If you have a non-climate controlled unit, then you know how hot it can get during the dog days of summer. That’s why it’s important to take precautions to beat the heat.

When it comes to spending time in your unit during the summer, it’s a good idea to bring a portable fan to keep you cool while you pack and unpack things in your unit. In addition, be sure to bring plenty of water. To avoid the hottest times of the day, come to your unit in the morning or evening. 

As far as your stored items go, it’s a good idea to place boxes and other stored items on top of pallets. This keeps from directly sitting on the floor of the unit, and this helps them from getting too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. 

Remember that you shouldn’t store wooden furniture, photographs, or electronics in a non-climate controlled unit. The fluctuating temperatures in the storage unit can damage these items.

If you’d like to avoid the heat altogether when it comes to your mini-storage unit, then we suggest that you rent a climate-controlled unit. We’d be happy to answer any questions that you have about these units. Just give us a call at Stow and Go Storage in Greenville, NC.

Appliances can be bulky and take up a lot of space in your home, wasted space if you’re not currently using them. That’s why it’s a great idea to have a mini-storage unit to store your appliances when you no longer need them. However, you have to take special precautions with appliances to make sure that they don’t get damaged when in storage. Here are some storage tips for appliances to help you out:

  • If at all possible, it’s ideal to store appliances in a climate-controlled unit. That way, you don’t have to worry about the extreme heat and cold affecting and possibly damaging your appliances while in storage.
  • Before you put an appliance like a dishwasher or washing machine into storage, you should run a final cycle, using bleach or white vinegar to clean it out before you store it.
  • Empty all liquid from any appliances before you put them into storage.
  • Be sure to take special care when packing and moving any appliances with glass. Don’t stack anything on top of these items when you put them in the storage unit.
  • Bulky appliances should go towards the back of your storage unit, that way you don’t have to move them every time that you try to access your unit.
  • Cover your appliances with a tarp or sheet to protect them from gathering dust or accidentally getting scratched.

Taking Outdoor Furniture Out of Storage | Mini-Storage Greenville, NC

Spring is here, and it’s time to take your outdoor furniture out of storage. Many people like to store their outdoor furniture during the winter to protect it from the snow and ice, especially since they’re typically not using this furniture during the winter months either. However, once the weather gets warm again, it’s time to take this furniture out of storage and spend more time outdoors.

When you get your outdoor furniture out of your mini-storage unit, you’ll want to give it a good cleaning. If you have wicker or wrought iron furniture, you can clean it with warm water, a mild dish soap, and a washcloth. Then, set it out in the sun to let it dry. If your furniture also has cushions, follow the manufacturer’s instructions for care– some cushions can be washed in the washing machine, while some can only be hand washed.

While your furniture is in storage, it’s a good idea to cover it with a sheet, tarp, or plastic. This will help keep it from getting dusty while stored away. When you take your furniture out, you’ll probably want to cover it when it’s not in use to protect it from damage from the sun and rain. Properly covering your outdoor furniture will help to extend its life so you can enjoy it for years to come.

Taking Your Boat Out of Storage | Mini-Storage Greenville, NC

The weather is getting warmer and spring is officially here. That means that it’s time to start hitting the water, whether it’s a lake, the ocean, or a sound. If you have your boat in storage, you might be thinking about bringing it out of storage for the season. Here are some tips to help you prepare your boat for the water after it’s been in storage for a while:

  • One of the first things you’ll want to do is to add fresh fuel to your boat. Before it’s put in storage, you should have removed all of the gas, so now it will need some to get it going.
  • Check to make sure that your battery is good to go next. Then, check the engine.
  • From there, you’ll want to check all of the fluids in your boat including your oil, coolant, and power steering fluid.
  • The cold from winter months can cause your belts and cables to crack, so you’ll want to check those too. 
  • Look at all of the electrical connections to make sure that there’s no corrosion anywhere.
  • Give your boat a good cleaning before you take it out onto the water, including dusting, washing, waxing, and polishing.
  • Before you take it out onto the water, make sure that all of your safety equipment is functioning and in place.

Once your boat is out of storage and ready to hit the water, we hope that you have a fun and safe time! And, remember, we are here for you when you’re ready to put your boat back into storage.

Spring Cleaning Your Storage Unit | Mini-Storage Greenville, NC

At Stow and Go Storage, we are all about providing you with quality mini-storage options and unbeatable customer service. That’s why we offer two state-of-the-art storage facilities in the Greenville, NC area. With two locations and a variety of unit sizes to choose from, you are sure to find mini-storage that meets your specific needs.

With spring right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to give your storage unit a good spring cleaning. Here are some tips to help you get your storage spick and span just in time for spring:

  • First, enlist the help of some friends or family and remove all of the items from the storage unit.
  • Next, sweep and dust thoroughly throughout the unit. Be sure to dust off your boxes as well. After you’ve swept and dusted, use an all-purpose cleaner that is unscented to clean the floors, walls, and shelves of your unit. Since your storage space is small and enclosed, it’s important to use a cleaner that isn’t scented.
  • Place pallets on your unit’s floor to add an extra layer of protection for your items once you store them.
  • When you’re cleaning your storage unit, it’s also the perfect time to get rid of items that you don’t need. If you have an inventory, go through your list and decide on items that you can part with. If you don’t have an inventory, now’s a great time to make one.
  • Next, before you bring your items back in, create a map and figure out the best way to use your space effectively. Place the larger items towards the back of the unit, and the items that you’ll need to access most frequently towards the front.
  • Make sure that everything is clearly labeled and create a map/inventory for your unit. That way, you can easily find whatever you need the next time that you visit.

North Carolina has been experiencing some extra cold weather recently. You might be wondering how that affects the items in your mini-storage unit. If you have a climate-controlled unit, there’s no need to worry, because your storage unit maintains the same temperature, no matter what the weather is like outside. However, if you have a traditional storage unit, you’ll want to take a few extra precautions to make sure that your belongings are safe from the harsh cold:

  • One thing that people don’t think about is their unit’s lock. Freezing temperatures can render your lock useless. That’s why it’s a good idea to spend a little extra money on a weatherproof lock, which can withstand both extreme hot and cold.
  • Place all of your items on wood pallets. This will help them be less exposed to the extreme temperatures.
  • Remove any items containing liquid from your unit. It’s generally not a good idea to store these types of items in a traditional storage unit, no matter what the weather is like.
  • If you have any items with batteries in them, be sure to take the batteries out before you store them.
  • You can add insulation to items by using packing peanuts (we suggest using the biodegradable type), blankets, and newspapers.
  • If you’re storing a boat, car, lawnmower, or anything else that contains gasoline, be sure to empty the gas tanks before you store them.

It’s cold out there, and we want you to stay warm, and we want to help you keep your stored items warm and safe as well. For all of your storage needs, come to see us at Stow and Go Storage in Greenville, NC.

If you’re thinking about getting a climate-controlled unit, let us go ahead and tell you: DO IT! The benefits of having a climate-controlled unit are endless, and here are just a few of these benefits:

  • There are a number of temperature-sensitive items that should not be stored in a non-climate-controlled unit. Some of these items include wooden furniture, wine, photographs, artwork, DVDs/CDs/vinyl records, and musical instruments. If you plan on storing any of these items, it’s a good idea to get a climate-controlled unit; otherwise, you risk damaging these items.
  • If you live in an area with high levels of humidity (we’re looking at you, North Carolina), it’s better to get a climate-controlled unit, as excessive humidity can bring additional moisture to your unit.
  • Climate-controlled units make it more comfortable for you when you visit your storage unit. You don’t have to worry about the elements getting in your way while you’re trying to get something that you need.
  • Climate-controlled units have better air quality since they have a continuous supply of air flowing in and out.
